Between working and well working, somehow I missed out on these Alexander McQueen Platform Sneakers that look like those classic Stan Smith Sneakers from Adidas except with a brilliant 2 inch platform that gives us petite gals a little bit of height. There hasn’t been too much chatter about them online and I am not sure if it is because they came out mid summer or because they sold out so fast, I am seeing online that they are all coming back in soon with pre orders available all over the interweb, so if you are like me and missed out the first time around, I suggest you pre order them or order them here and get them to your house in 2 business days and start wearing them everywhere ASAP including that walking trip this holiday season to Mexico, Paris, or Aspen.

The beginning of the cool season is your time to focus the attention on your fashion rather than your beach body. Your casual look will set the tone for the rest of your fall. Here are five must have women’s sneakers for autumn.
Calf leather gives you a great overall feel as a base, and a metallic finish and a gold trim look absolutely great with any pair of quality jeans. The round toe and lace up front provide a modern look, and the low top silhouette gives you a unique look that is just cool enough to look like you just “rolled out of bed looking like this” without losing that chic flavor.
This incredibly unique leather and jewel sneaker features a hand applique as its strap cover. The contrast heel counter gives you a great base color scheme that brings you classic Italy and modern fashion.
This French roller skate sneaker has a lace up front, round toe and rubber sole for ultimate comfort as you take your footwear to the next level. Yes, you are literally moving on roller skates, but the star appliques and metallic leather ensure that you are seen as a true fashionetta, not a high schooler skipping class.
The high rubber outsole and platform heel give you an elevated style, not just an elevated height. The velvet gives you one of the smoothest feels of any sneaker on the market, and the jeweled moon and star appliques add an iconic look that you will feel proud to rock anywhere.
Faux leather gives you a slightly less expensive fashion item, and the detachable applique gives you the ability to move low key or attract attention based on your mood. The polyester build gives you a comfortable feel that will ensure you can stay on your feet for a long time.
McQ Alexander McQueen Flirty Dress – this is the best dress from McQ Alexander McQueen for fall. It is a sweatshirt style top with a skirt in a patchwork style that is elegant and casual at the same time. The dress will keep you cozy and warm in the fall with a pair of black tights and pumps for the office OR a pair of knee high black boots. On warmer days you could even go bare legged and wear this dress with a pair of open toe ankle booties. However you decide to wear this dress it is one of my favorite looks for fall because it is that 2 in 1 style that makes dressing for work early in the morning on those cold winter days easy.
Alexander McQueen Grey Tote BagÂ – love this bag. It is like a modern Hermes birkin for the modern edgier woman. The leather is supple and textured in a gorgeous dove grey for winter. The key padlock is a signature Alexander McQueen skull that gives the bag a very sleek look. The tote is just a great looking bag with simple lines.
MCQ Alexander McQueen Leather Jacket with Fur SleevesÂ – please tell me you are not expecting me to tell you this is the most amazing leather jacket I have ever seen…I just cannot in good conscience say that to you only because I believe it makes even this very thin model look like she has gorilla arms.
I love MCQ and I love Alexander McQueen and I think that everything done by Alexander McQueen up until this point has always been and probably always will be genius…except this jacket. This leather jacket with the luxe curly fur sleeves just does not make any sense. I would say had the leather jacket in the motorcycle style had non curly fur sleeves it would have been luxe and couture and possibly gorgeous, but the curly fur just makes it bulky.
Unless there are those of you out there who love to look like a gorilla or have such pin thin arms that you think you need to get some help to bulk them up in the form of clothing, I would say this jacket needs to be worn only for very specific occasions like for instance a costume party where the theme is King Kong OR for a MET GALA costume ball, magazine photo shoot about the jungle or a party for the most outlandish outfits. I dunno. What do you think? I guess it is a statement piece. So if you want to make a statement get this MCQ Alexander McQueen Leather Jacket with the fur sleeves for $2465.
Made in Italy. Â Alexander McQueen was known for runways exotic in clothing, models, and set decor. At a young age, McQueen cut his teeth on Savile Row, where he apprenticed with tailors Anderson & Sheppard and worked for Gieves & Hawkes. He later worked with Koji Tatsuno and Italy’s Romeo Gigli before returning to London in 1994 to receive his masters from Central Saint Martins. Style icon Isabella Blow bought McQueen’s entire graduation collection, marking the launch of his fashion career. McQueen received several awards and accolades, including the British Designer of the Year, which he won four times, the CBE, and was named International Designer of the Year by the CFDA in 2003. In addition to designing his own line, McQueen also served as head designer for Givenchy and collaborated with PUMA and MAC Cosmetics. McQueen’s mainline features eccentric prints, avid use of color, innovative garme
This is Alexander McQueen’s MOST ICONIC scarf because it is modal, frayed at the ends and just so red. Love it. Every celebrity has a few – Nicole Richie is a collector. I see this with t shirts and cut off jean shorts and ankle boots by Isabel Marant. How will you wear it?
Own an iconic piece of fashion and join the chic. Get the Alexander McQueen scarf for $445.
Alexander McQueen Skull Leather Pouch NEW – if you have not seen a great pouch for the coming season – look no further than this gorgeous little leather pouch with the skull zippre pull from Alexander McQueen. Following in the minimalist trend of Saint Laurent and Celine, Alexander McQueen brings their own special touch of the skull to the minimalist look of a royal purple pouch.Â
Instead of buying the Celine trio cross body bag which has its own merits – get this Alexander McQueen purple soft leather pouch for $270. Love it.
I am really loving all the bright bags this season. Alexander McQueen has a bright yellow bag out and my favorite designer Proenza Schoulder has a bright blue PS1 Lagoon Bag that is just the cheeriest shade of sky blue that a gal could ask for. If you want a cheer me up and pick me up from the grey February snow kinda bag, get this bag and stare at it like you are staring up at the sky. Even on the most grey of days this sky blue bag will lift your spirits.
Get this very pretty bag before it sells out. Proenza Schoulder PS1 Lagoon Blue bag for $1,695.
